Peninsula Fine Arts Center

Students will study what to look for, how to select and crop; to choose key shapes and to draw them; to build pictorial space; to structure of darks and lights; to mix color; to learn strategies to build strong compositions and effectively handle paint. Weather permitting, students will work outdoors during both a morning painting sessions and an afternoon painting session. A group critique will follow both painting sessions. All mediums and all skill levels invited. A suggested materials list will accompany your registration and will reflect your emphasis on oil, acrylic, or watercolor. Pfac will supply a lightweight aluminum easily if you do not have an outdoor easel. Philip Koch is well known for his vividly colored contemporary landscape paintings. His work is featured this summer in Unbroken Thread: The Art of Philip Koch, part of an eight-museum tour that begins at Pfac on July 23. For more biographical information, refer to www.pfac-va.org.
